The family of Osama Bin Laden arrived in Jeddah (a city located on the coast of the Red Sea and the major urban center of western Saudi Arabia. It is the largest city in Makkah Province, the largest sea port on the Red Sea, and the second largest city in the country after the capital city, Riyadh) and was received at the airport by some members of the family, an official source said for Tolerancia Real. “The Kingdom dealt with this matter on humanitarian grounds and after understanding that there is no evidence on their involvement in any crimes or illegal activities,” the source said. “It is not sound to dwell into details affecting the privacy of the Binladen family,” the source said, adding that the family’s travel was facilitated on the request of Binladens in the Kingdom.
According to one report, the family that arrived from Pakistan included three widows and 11 children, who were detained by Pakistani security forces after the May 2, 2011 raid. This day, Osama bin Laden, the former head of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda known for the September 11 attacks in New York, USA, was killed in Pakistan, shortly after 1 am local time by a United States special operations military unit. A Pakistani court sentenced the women to 45 days in prison this month for entering Pakistan illegally and ordered their deportation after the end of the prison term, which began on March 3 when they were formally arrested. "The plane carrying Amal and (her brother) Zakariya al-Sadeh and the rest of the family is heading to Jeddah,"

At the house in Islamabad where the relatives had been held, a white minivan pulled up to take them to the airport. The women refused to enter the van with a crush of media around it, so officials covered its windows with plastic sheets. The Interior Ministry, which was in charge of the family, said in a statement it had "passed orders for the deportation of 14 members of Osama bin Laden family in pursuance of the Court orders". "The family was kept safe and sound in a guest house. They have been deported to the country of their choice, Saudi Arabia." it said.
The bin Laden family, also spelled bin Ladin, is a wealthy family intimately connected with the innermost circles of the Saudi royal family. The family was thrown into media spotlight through the activities of Osama bin Laden. The financial interests of the bin Laden family are represented by the Saudi Binladin Group, a global oil and equity managementconglomerate grossing $5 billion US annually, and the largest construction firm in the world, with offices in London and Geneva.
